  • ABSTRACT Here we describe the forearm and manus of the ceratosaurian theropod dinosaur Ceratosaurus nasicornis Marsh, 1884, from the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of the western U.S.A. Recently removed from exhibition and reprepared, the holotype offers important new information on the morphology of this taxon that bears on the evolution of the forelimb in nonavian theropod dinosaurs more generally. The ulna and radius show particular similarities to those of Dilophosaurus and Eoabelisaurus… CONTINUE READING
